    I need to source a bike for a friend.

    It needs to be a ladies frame, 27" wheels, single sprocket on 3-speed hub, or shimano Nexus.

    Basically, I want a classic ladies town bike, but she doesn't want to spend hundreds. Maybe between 100 and 150......

    Spotted some good looking ones on Ebay, have sent her some links.....

    This kind of bike should be in every shop, it's ideal for most lady cyclists.

    But if you look at the halfords and argos ranges, and face it, that's where most people get their bikes, they have nothing like it

    all halfords lady models have 15 gears, v brakes, etc etc, difficult to maintain.......................
